Lets say you have two text boxes with the name txtUsername and txtPassword.  Using ActionScript 3 how do you change focus to password when tab is pressed or even shift tab to go up to username.  

I am looking at the FocusManager documentation but i can't get it to work.  Any examples

you Just need to add following code:


txtUsername.tabIndex = 0;
txtPassword.tabIndex =1;


IMPORTANT:
To test the tab indexing in Flash authoring environment, you must "Disable Keyboard Shortcuts", see attached image for more details

The reason its not working and i found out why but it would be good to disable.    I am loading a Animation file that was created in Flash 8.  For some reason the tabindex is getting lost from this.  Is there anyway to disable the tabindex on the loaded Animation.

var loadit = new Loader();

loadit.load(new URLRequest("loginnew.swf"));

mcCon.addChild(loadit);

Open in new window
